IRIS SMEDS | VARIOUS WORKS
MARCH 9–APRIL 14, 2018
NSFW/SVILOVA is proud to present a collaboration with Göteborgs Konsthall in conjunction with the exhibition Mozart’s Ghost (Internet Art, Feminism and Resistance). The show is designed as a three part process-based program, the exhibition invites us to reflect and take part in the current dialogue between technology, feminism and contemporary art.
As a part of this collaboration we will show five video works by Swedish artist Iris Smeds: The Average/Tits of Dali (2018), Surreal Strategies to Apply on a Disillusioned Landscape (2016), The Actress; The Oracle; The Tragedy (2015) The Oracle (2014) and I am the Path of Success (2011).
Iris Smeds works with issues regarding female representation, identity as merchandise and art as entertainment. Her projects often take form of video pieces and public performances. It deals with comparing the monetary and spiritual value of art and human kind and is lately elaborating with surrealism and poetry as method for idea production.
